Signaling through the insulin pathway is very important for the regulation of glucose homeostasis. The hormone insulin is produced in response to nutrients within the blood and leads to the downstream uptake of glucose and synthesis of glycogen. Decreases in insulin receptor signaling may lead to insulin resistance, which can contribute towards the development of Type 2 diabetes.
